Discussed by Stephanie Lambert
with Texas HS Coalition

GETTING YOUR KIDS PLUGGED IN WITH HOMESCHOOL ACTIVITIES
Discussed by Stephanie Lambert
with Texas HS Coalition

If you have chosen to homeschool your children this year, there is probably one question heavy on your mind: Will my kids still have friends and social activities?

The answer is YES!

Contrary to popular opinion, most homeschoolers are just as busy (if not busier!) than pubic school families! There are many homeschool groups and co-ops to choose from. Click here  for a list of homeschool groups in your area.

Is it legal to homeschool in Texas?

How easy is it to withdraw a student from public school? Click here  for the withdrawal form.

What are some of the curriculum options available? How does a parent know which one is best for their child/teen?



WHO’S COUNTING: THE PROBLEM WITH MASS MAIL-IN BALLOTS
Discussed by Hans von Spakovsky
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)


Part 1 of 2

Joseph Stalin once stated: "It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

Is there danger in putting a Presidential Election in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service?

If we can shop in-person, shouldn’t we be able to vote in-person?

FACT: There were over 6.5 million ballots misdirected or unaccounted for by various states in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Hans von Spakovsky discusses this serious issue today, specifically questions regarding the “safety” of voting in-person. Hans book, “Who’s Counting: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk”, can be found here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Where is the PROOF that millions of mail-in ballots from the 2016 Presidential Election are unaccounted for?

Does President Trump have the power and authority to delay the upcoming November Election?

Why are Democrats pushing so hard for total mail-in votes across the nation? Hans urges people to look at the bigger picture; it’s not just about the election.

What are some of President Trump’s concerns about mail-in voting? Are those concerns valid?



PART 2 OF 2 - WHO’S COUNTING: THE PROBLEM WITH MASS MAIL-IN BALLOTS
Discussed by Hans von Spakovsky
with The Heritage Foundation (www.Heritage.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Will an all-mail-in ballot system delay results for days, weeks, or even months? Hans uses New York as an example. They held their Primary on June 23. (Remember: Primary Elections have a much lower voter turnout than General Elections, especially Presidential General Elections.) They just finished counting the ballots a few days ago! That is absolutely ridiculous!

Should Americans insist on their right to vote in-person?

Why did Hans co-write “Who’s Counting: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk”? (link above)



PSALMS FOR LIVING
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program


Today’s Psalms for Living devotion is from Psalm 89:20-24

How is God preparing you to do His work for His Kingdom? Are you a man (or woman) after God’s own heart? Are you compassionate? Do you seek justice?

The life story of David is fascinating. For many reasons, he was not an obvious choice to be ruler. Mark believes that David’s training as a shepherd served him well and prepared him for his role as king.

ASPENS A FELLOWSHIP
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Mark Lanier has some encouragement for us during the Coronavirus quarantine.

What does koinonia mean? Are you practicing koinonia like an Aspen tree? Protecting, loving, caring, and devoting yourself to others is the whole point of being a Christian, after all!

Mark challenges us to reach out to at least one person today and show them koinonia.

Scripture Reference: Acts 2:42

This week, Mark uses a lot of visual explanations in his video. Click here  for today’s full video.



LESSON 21: THE TABERNACLE PART 7
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)

Mark Lanier continues with his Road to Emmaus series, which is in The Tabernacle series, which is also in the Corona series. The last few weeks, he has studied the Valley of the Dry Bones, which can be found in our archives.

This week, Mark looks at small details from Isaiah 6 which point to Jesus in the New Testament.

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Historical Context: Isaiah 6:1

Who was King Uzziah?

Where was his kingdom?

How old was Uzziah when he became king?

Was he a good king?

What was Uzziah’s ultimate destruction?


Tune in tomorrow as Mark discusses three things we can learn from Isaiah 6:1 about God and three things we can learn from Isaiah 6:2-4 about angelic worship.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Did God’s people observe Communion before the “Last Supper”?

Why did some people accuse Christians of practicing cannibalism?
